My specialty is regulating and healing the nervous system through trauma-focused "bottom-up" modalities of healing and supportive touch.
The foundation of my training as a Somatic Therapist began in 2002, when I was attuned to level I of Usui Reiki. Vibrational healing was my first language, and as I went further in with my studies over the years, I began to discover I could “see” and "feel" into dysfunctions held within the body. As I honed my intuitive skills, I began to understand much of our life’s narratives are held within our cells. The grief of loved ones we’ve lost, the stories of the work we’re meant to do while we’re here, our higher truths, the children we had or never had, even geographical places that we yearn to visit are all held in our body stories. All of these narratives serve as opportunities for healing. This understanding and practice has become the foundation to all of the services that I offer.
I am an Ohio State Medical Board Licensed Massage Therapist and have been in private practice for 10 years. I also hold certifications as an Usui Reiki Master Teacher/Therapist and Safe & Sound Protocol practitioner, a diploma in Medical Assisting, a limited x-ray license focused on erect spinal x-rays, and have previously worked as an Chiropractic Physical Therapy Assistant, and as a clinical MA in Obstetrics & Gynecology.
I have attended trainings in Shiatsu, Upledger's Craniosacral Therapy, Integrated Neuromuscular Therapy, Therapeutic Application of Essential Oils, Integrated Somatic Psychology™, Massage Work with Anxiety Disorders, Nature Shaman practices, Sound Healing, Vibrational Healing, Aromatherapy, Crystal Therapy, along with a 12-month long Reiki Master Training Program through Angelic Devas Spiritual Enrichment Center in Yellow Springs, Ohio. I have completed the Advanced year of Dr. Peter Levine's Somatic Experiencing® Trauma Resolution Program, and will be moving towards certification as an SEP by the end of 2022.
Somatic Experiencing® techniques are incorporated into all of my sessions with clients. In addition, I use various tools of nurturing to help your nervous system rest so that you can begin to feel more regulated. As your body settles into experiences of support and safety, we can begin the deeper work of gently releasing excess and outdated energy that’s been keeping you ‘stuck’.
Below is a list some of the tools I may use in our sessions together either through chair or treatment table work. We will work together to determine which tools are best suited for you.
